Programs offered

Leadership and Management

In 2016 the School launched two pilot programs, LaMP and Transform, designed to facilitate the development of future leaders and managers with demonstrated leadership and managerial capacity. The pilot run of the programs clearly demonstrated its quality and ability to meet the personal and professional development needs of individuals. 

LaMP - Leadership and Management Program

The purpose of LaMP is to support frontline and middle-level managers in The Salvation Army with relevant and targeted activities and initiatives that will develop and build upon their current capability. 

There are three levels to the LaMP structure and the program delivery is through webinars, self-paced modules and workshops. Individual journeys may look different depending on your level, previous experience and the start point.

TRANSFORM - Transformational Leadership Program

The purpose of Transform is to strengthen the leadership capability of senior managers and leaders in The Salvation Army who  demonstrate strong leadership capabilities and have the potential to be considered for future senior/executive positions.

Transform is delivered through residentials, supported by a range of development activities undertaken before, between and after the residentials. 

Both programs approach learning with a 70:20:10 Model where experience and relationship with others along with formal learning are crucial elements in the program methodology.
